Faith In Action: Ideas, Session 13: Love (Gloves)

In "Toolbox of Faith," a Tapestry of Faith program

Description of Activity

Engage in an activity which expresses love as a quality of our faith, through action. The group might:

  • Create cards for shut-ins and get well cards that can be given directly to members who are ill, or can be given to your congregation's caring committee or lay ministry program for distribution.
  • Make extra Cinnamon Heart Ornaments to decorate a room in your facility or make a winter holiday or Valentine's centerpiece or other display. Let the smell of cinnamon remind us of the warmth of compassion!
  • Make extra "I Love You" badges to give to others in the congregation.

Bring the Golden Rule into Your Congregation

Provide as decor the colorful, 22x28 inch poster, "The Golden Rule." The group may wish to hold a bake sale or other fundraiser to purchase a copy of the poster, which provides sacred writings from many of the world's religious and spiritual traditions equivalent to what is known in the Jewish and Christian traditions as the Golden Rule: "Do unto others as you would have others do unto you." The poster was published by religious educator Paul McKenna and the interfaith office of Scarboro Mission, a Canadian society of Catholic priests and laity. The Unitarian Universalist seventh Principle appears on the poster: "We affirm and promote respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part."
